moscow tonight our top story the european union's three presidents have received this year's nobel peace prize on behalf of the group it's been given to commend the e.u. for fostering peace but not everyone agrees hundreds marched through the norwegian capital in protest peter all of a look so why many believe the e.u. doesn't deserve the prize and why the whole nobel institution now may need to rethink. remark or liberal. one day eleven days they will not be deterred by a call about him but by the content of their character. the one that can be probably wouldn't become a glorious. however the nobel peace prize is only awarded to a living person this is when it text search criteria especially when it comes to finances the announcement the european union was to pick up the twenty twelve gongs sparked. heated debate borders being discredited particularly to the outrage it
1:02 pm
picked it up recently well to be frank inside the united states i don't think very many people pay attention to the nobel peace prize anymore large numbers of americans were stunned when yasser arafat received the nobel peace prize many years ago president obama was given a prize for reasons that no one understood see what's. done over the last twelve months to convince the nobel committee it's worthy of such a prestigious award. it supported regime change in foreign countries and several member states indulged in violent crackdowns on demonstrate is outraged by the failure of the government's. skeptics. to get devalues the whole concept of the nobel peace prize what's really happening is that the european union is having its worst year ever but it's mates and the international community coming to it's
1:03 pm
a brit to have been awarded of the announcement to be made in the very week that i went to athens i was greeted not just by tens of thousands of protesters but people dressed up in swastikas and giving it the salutes frankly i grew up in a europe that was divided from east to west but i'm now living in a europe that is divided from north to south and never at any point in the history of this union has there been more discord of rancor that we've currently got among more moderate forces there are concerns the peace prize is being used as a political football i think this award basically does a lot kind of discredit past people who've won this prize i mean it demonstrates a sort of heavy politicization of the use of this war and now it's been suggested that this year's winner of the peace prize picked it up more for not having done something as opposed to having food the peace around the globe it seems like they got the prize more. because there hasn't been any war in europe for many decades
1:04 pm
rather than having done anything specific i think as long as civic institutions like the nobel prize continue to lose their legitimacy and their spirit through political favoritism these prizes are always political but obvious political favoritism and maneuvering i think it actually takes something away and i think it's actually damaging leaves the whole institution of the prize facing the question of whether the nobility is being drained from the new peter all of the r t . so sue and i'm stable situation of the european markets too is it's at least ten the current leaders says his time in office will soon be up late so when we look at what's in store with out in mind with simply no way out of the crisis. now it's the egypt's military has taken over the country's security no given powers of arrest in the run up to the referendum the next week's votes being rejected by the opposition is unrepresentative with calls to stage mass nationwide protests
1:05 pm

percentage of the country. by islamist dominated constituent somebody to here in cairo really expecting big crowds on choose day against the president. by a new coalition of islamic forces oppose the president on tuesday they said they want to have a million people on the streets in support of the president of course with the background of violence on wednesday between rival protest groups right here at the presidential palace which bloody scenes in the streets of cairo such reasons we've now been told the president has also made a tree to step in and secure the nation in addition to giving powers to arrest citizens this has been met with much criticism from the protesters who feel that the military will take a heavy hand this comes off the minute you of course egypt hosni mubarak stepped down last year which witnessed quite a heavy and bloody crackdown on protesters during the last transition period last
1:07 pm
night at the protest in front of the presidential palace protesting screens for teach all. of. human rights violations towards protesters on the screens of the president the president was in a presidential palace they said to remind people of what the military capable of right now the republican guard still have their tanks outside their place in iraq to twelve areas which the protesters did manage to push through but it's still a sign maybe we'll see more tanks on the streets as their descent continues in the lead up to this controversial referendum. true let's talk more about the political crisis in egypt with me editor could celebrate newspaper you joining us on the live on the line live from london either thanks me with this if you describe a bit more c.e.o.'s quote new dictator in the past you've accused him of hijacking the revolution but now years given up for those sweeping powers does that suggest
1:08 pm
to you maybe you were wrong. does not actually. what's happening in egypt. good news that you should not court is actually still hijacked by. the. muslim brotherhood. and. this. is existing. in egypt and that's why i retreated because when you don't confuse you. cannot actually make any judgment. because he insisted on the. draft actually has not been discussed. by the people of egypt security and. actually the country. will.
1:09 pm
speak for the first time ever in the history of egypt. for the military as needed charge of egypt's security until the results of the voting is that suggest he's jittery about the referendum and if so what is just can slip make a new draft is kind of the obvious question but i want the answer is. well what in the military. is the quite risky. ironically when this was done by the security. by the skull for the military council in egypt. last year it was condemned by everybody including morty himself and now he's doing the same being. risky because it will be the ministry and pleasures and the army will find. itself in the middle of the clashes and this is going to be injurious i think
1:10 pm
the country is in the age of the. point we don't even know it will be in them because. many judges are still refusing to supervise it which will make it illegal if it happens without full judiciary supervision what's your view on the opposition and their stance they're blaming the government for dividing the country but why can't they make some concessions the greater dialogue instead of pushing for more protests as they are. well there is no point to. point if he's insisting on. this course if you shouldn't really. be a threat to the unity of the people to their state of egypt that i've done to the people of egypt feel that i didn't see their identities being taken we
1:11 pm

1:12 pm
despite the. deep divisions between the opposition and the ruling family could prove. a lot more often. beauty of gracefully the. more than. it is a way of life traditionally the people are. herders and though in many ways. they are also highly skilled and organized. and.
1:13 pm
depending. on the day we found this particular camp they were settled near the coast of the sea here for families work together to manage nearly a thousand reindeer herding reindeer is not just a job people in fact it's a part of their entire culture and way of life and that they can use almost every single part of the reindeer to help them survive. a deer is a means of transportation. with. the life in the tundra is harsh and so before winter hits many of the children are helicoptered to the center of the district. for boarding school. in students learn different languages utilize modern technologies through specialized grant programs and even learn arts skills all within a protected environment the school was founded and named for and. a scientist who
1:14 pm
wanted a better way of life for his people but even with the most progressive ideas and education many say they don't want to trade the modern life for their beloved. i have returned to the tundra and i actually like it here if you're outside there's fresh air fresh water looks at the site you can see here it's a joyful sight. a sentiment that hopefully ensures that russia's northern reindeer will have caretakers for generations to come. will the. technology innovation all the developments around russia we've. covered.

1:16 pm
tests for it to properly diagnose whether they've got an almost three quarters of the people suffering from the disease but people not born in the u.k. surface in london. austerity is fighting pretty much every sector and it's a time of year when the n.h.s. already incredibly eva stretches to even further by everyone's costs and sniffles and i think that's really part of what's made this recent study that showing that the number of cases of t.v. in the tasting continually rising over the party decades so alarming knowing thousand cases last year that's up five percent from the year before and i think a real question here over whether or not the n.h.s. that is facing these huge cuts to the services with these austerity measures is actually going to be equipped to deal with this threat to our health let's help me out so that i caught up a little earlier with talk to at least story he works on the very front line here
1:17 pm
in london with identifying and cheating people who have tuberculosis and he spoke to me about some of the dangers of this current situation this is something that it's right back to the 1980's has been going on a long time why have we been able to bring our system up to date to do with the subject of play well i think. there's been a number of challenges. but certainly no challenge that could be overcome many of our european partners move on north american partners have successfully. controlled tuberculosis facing the exact same challenges that we face those principally increasing gratian increasing rates of tb internationally due to a new choice. and in many cases increasing problems of pockets in the community who have suffering extreme social deprivation due to a. lot of years going to be watching this and saying you know we're hearing all the
1:18 pm
time about these cuts to the n.h.s. about your thirty measures affecting you know our health sector and yet we're seeing these you know incredibly high numbers of tuberculosis cases it's quite a scary situation i think for the high. slated to be in might now it is a scary situation to be index linked to poverty if you look at the disease across europe the most important correlating factor is poverty. tb is a disease that finds it's nice to put into the community who are down on their luck because obviously and immunologically we're going to tell who to be we have to get out of the hospitals into the community to be free to communities and sure you can get faster access to diagnostics and good schools through treatment which is a minimum of six months when i was speaking to dr ali he did with of the service here in london working every day on the front line he created public health it's purchase the ball and that really sort of service down your spine because you know
1:19 pm
at the moment what we're seeing is the economy as a whole here in the u.k. is sick and unfortunately the government's cure for that is austerity measures and we're going to think we're already seeing the implications of cutting to the health service at a time when it's under say much pressure and you know these stories i think they're really going to keep on coming as we see the effects of. sort of first one of our team in london according bahrain has jailed the daughter of a prominent opposition activist for one month for taking part in a demonstration here designer third conviction in the past six months with her father serving life property against the ruling family the uprising in bahrain has been going on for almost two years now although the opposition in the regime say they are ready for dialogue but there's a jet ski reports their divisions might run too deep for any lasting peace. subject says his life was shattered his sits on a municipal council in bahrain and several months ago he was shot by police during a peaceful protest looking at his injuries his lucky to be alive and online
1:20 pm
a lot and i was with many of the protesters when we were faced by riot police they did not hesitate to shoot us directly to the head with the bullets the police are using are for hunting birds and animals i've been shot at over one hundred ninety two helots that's got it all over my body in the head face arms and legs the most dangerous ones are those inside my lungs. so deep is just one of hundreds who have suffered in the anti-government protests that started around twenty months ago when revolution fever was sweeping the middle east and north africa descend in bahrain differs little from that in nation swept by the arab spring. but the story never stop it is a belief in different areas against the regime against that dictatorship i didn't stand the situation. one thousand five hundred has another we have. every day we have a lot of. security forces surrounding the area attacking the people at that
1:21 pm
house and given the outcome of the arab spring of evils bahrain's ruling elite is doing its best to stamp out revolt the government recently slapped a ban on public gatherings bahrain's chief of police says it's not permanent but it is necessary we have introduced a temporary restriction on gatherings and protests and that is. one reason because lately we have seen that these gatherings and protests have been taking more violent. methods and one year we had over four hundred protests in bahrain that's more than one protest but big and we have tried to solve the problem however they didn't seem to be able to control protests and the gatherings despite the ban and the risk of arrest people are still gathering the hard core of the protest comes from poor neighborhoods as soon as we reached one we needed he encountered
1:22 pm
a small in peace who anti-government so roundly. some a simple symbol to estimate how many people actually taking part there just a moment in the way back here is that these protesters are being supported by the local she immediately which may come up to seventy percent of this country's population. the ruling elite are sunni muslims and this may look like a sectarian war but the authorities firmly reject their actions are religiously motivated there is a radical movement in the opposition party they are hardliners they want to see regime change they want to implement their own style of government they seek a secretary in theocracy and that is unacceptable saw because i feel out of desperation they know that they don't have the support of the rest of the population of bahrain they have turned to these violent means the protests are gathering momentum and allegations of torture in prisons are leading to serious
1:23 pm
international pressure being put on monarch so bahrain's rulers find themselves in a tough position they want dialogue with dissenters but the question is whether they will be satisfied with what the king has to offer let's hear a shift key r.t. reporting from the kingdom of bahrain. and the western warnings circling over syria's chemical weapons but thereby israel's got another worry on its mind that the arsenal could get into the hands of hezbollah for israel such as being controlled by what it considers to be a terrorist group would be a red line marcus papadopoulos is editor of politics first magazine he says the concerns are not groundless either. there's a very strong possibility that the syrian militants could very well acquire chemical weapons which of course would be catastrophic not just for syria but for the entire region it might be an inconvenient truth to many was western politicians but of course the islamists in syria who are largely representative of the
1:24 pm
militants they wouldn't hesitate to use them against syria's minorities and they certainly wouldn't hesitate to use them against israel so that so very important to stop the flow through the constant flow of weapons and cash into syria by us or to western states. to saudi arabia and qatar the israelis then not concerned that the syrian government would use chemical weapons against israel they are very concerned that the militants in syria would use them and if they are quiet then it could be a pretext that but the west issues in conceivably america were to intervene in the syria they claimed in the run up to the invasion of iraq the reasons for going in iraq had weapons of mass destruction nothing was found intervene in libya colonel gadhafi forces we need to pose we're going to see. our sins and thousands of libyan civilians there was never any evidence for that then once again yes there's
1:25 pm
a very realistic possibility that the militants in syria could acquire chemical weapons and of course who would be responsible for that it would be those countries around the world in particular in that region turkey saudi arabia gets our start in western countries that are doing absolutely everything they can at the moment to weaken the syrian government. much more our website r t the call there now moscow preparing to approve the list of americans accused of human rights violations in response to washington the magnitsky bill accusing russians of the say when read up more on has been running for a long time but we've got the latest updates online also their house. this for a killer apples the tories new iphone maps are labeled life threatening known as stray or misleading travelers to found some towns on visits of forty kilometers from where they should be but all happening in the scorching outback you break down there you're in stoke r.t. dot com is a place for. updating on some world news making the headlines right now
